Sound Shapes in a 2D musical platformer, and every level of the game is a song. Your goal is to gather notes from around the level to create the song while also interacting with the creatures and objects throughout the level which act as musical instruments. Players may also make their own levels with the creatures, notes, and songs of their choice. A full level editor and online community are parts of the game, allowing you to create and share across the world with PS Vita and PS3 players alike (regardless of which version you have).
Interesting, right? Well, that’s not all. Matthew Kumar of the Sound Shapes team writes:
“We’ve worked with different graphic and musical artists on each album of level-songs, with the likes of Shaw-Han in his I am Robot and Proud guise, Deadmau5, Jim Guthrie and Beck working with graphic artists like Vic Ngyuen of Capy, Pyramid Attack, PixelJam and Superbrothers.”
If you are into musical adventures and platformers, this is the game for you.
